The headline, “Vatican Aids Eichmann to Escape” is splashed on Page One of the Jerusalem Post. Of course my stomach turns, I’m a Roman Catholic. My husband and I have spent the past five years conducting research and documenting the growth of anti-Semitism in some conservative Catholic organizations, so I have no difficulty in believing [...]
It’s one thing for my aged, cataract’d mother-in-law to mistake Vice President Joe Biden for Gorbachev yesterday.
